Indulging in a bowl of creamy, delicious kheer may satisfy your sweet tooth, but do you know how it affects your body’s glucose metabolism? Kheer contains ingredients such as milk, almonds, cashew nuts, and raisins that are packed with essential nutrients like calcium, proteins, vitamins, and healthy fats. However, rice, another ingredient in kheer, has a high glycemic index (GI), meaning it can cause a rapid spike in blood glucose levels.

Satisfy your sweet tooth and keep glucose spikes at bay with kheer
• Using low glycemic index alternatives to white rice like black rice.
• Replacing sugar with a natural sweetener like stevia, erythritol, or monk fruit.
• Adding nuts such as almonds and walnuts to the kheer. It increases healthy fats and slows down glucose release.

To reduce glucose fluctuations, optimise kheer by making simple recipe tweaks. Kheer’s nutrient-dense ingredients can slow sugar absorption, regulating blood sugar levels. Enjoy this beloved Indian dessert strategically by using low-GI rice, natural sweeteners, and portion control. Kheer can be a healthy part of your diet with a little hack.
